assistance with our many business partners. this is a core part of mfac original purpose in san francisco. we are focused on building this capacity once again. as everyone here knows, the nature of how cities are doing business is changing. fundamentally. costly federal and state mandates continue to squeeze local budgets. increasing costs are forcing discussions about how we provide services. technology is requiring that we move more quickly than we have in a long time. building a network of partners to support our city government at this time will be more important than ever and will be critical as we were to emerge from the recession. we have a real opportunity here. we also have a real responsibility to help investment and success of our city. spur is committed to making this happen. we hope that all of you join us as we work to leverage a lot of these partnerships once again. spur is a nonprofit. member-supported think tank in san francisco committed to the success of the city in all its forms. many of you are already members. can we get a show of hands of spur members? that's fantastic.

in school board elections in san francisco. by implication own a community college election would fit in that rubric, to support college advancement to people who have traditionally been put at the margins of our society. in those two elections, i think, are the most fundamental in the sense that they go to the root of advancement in this country and the obtaining of the american dream. so the school board and community college board i would certainly support that. >> thank you, miss olague. >> i don't think there is much to add to that. i know a couple of years ago there was a ballot measure that failed. so i would totally support bringing this back and allowing people to reconsider it. because as mr. everett said, i think it is important for people, especially those who have children in the school district and also students at the city college level to be able to weigh in on those types of questions. and i would be open to considering other elections as well. but i think as mr. everett mentioned, at a minimum, i would consider supporting and allowing non-citizens to vote in e
to the statement by supervisor olague. we welcome the new archbishop to the city and county of san francisco. i believe that he officially takes office on thursday of this week. you know, san francisco has always been a very welcoming place and it is in that spirit that we extend an invitation to the archbishop to work with every member of the catholic community in the city and county of san francisco, including many of us who have been raised catholic and are practicing catholic, but who happen to be lgbt. it is my hope that as he takes over his very important position in the city and county of san francisco that he will be someone who will embrace the entirety of the catholic community, and that means many in the lgbt community. and i think that it's really about the emphasis and the hope is that we can focus on things where there is common ground. i appreciate and respect the work that he has done on behalf of the poor, on behalf of many immigrants including undocumented people. and it is my hope that in that same spirit that we can work on ways in which we can find some common ground instea

the urban search and rescue program that the san francisco fire department puts on for the navy and the marines, and that is a very successful program. we started in 2010. in 2011 what we realized is that every marin is a rifle man and every sailor is a firefighter. and, so, conversely, the navy last year, they're going to do it again this year, invites the fire department on board the ship to learn shipboard firefighting techniques. and with that i'm going to introduce chief joanne hayes white.

. this is one example where san francisco has dropped the ball on water. we're going to need a lot of water. i know we have water here, but i'm going back that they haven't properly assessed how to take care of groundwater infrastructure. all of that water in hetch hetchy is in yosemite, far away. we used to use 14.5 million gallons from our groundwater. now we only use 2.2 and it's not there. and this is the kind of thing that you need and you need to think about it now before the big one hited. >> hits. >> thank you, miss selby. >> yes, i was also going to pull out any nert card because i'm so proud of it. it's awesome. my neighbors just got the courage award from the red cross today and nert got an award from red cross. so i would love and i have not veted this idea, so i don't know if it's possible or not. but i think we should require nert training. we're in a city that the first-responders, even if you had a gazillion firefighters, first of all, most of them don't live here unfortunately and secondly we're going to need all of us when it comes to a big earthquake. when you get this t
olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of inequity i'm talking about. we need accountability. so i appreciate that and we need that. thank you. >> thank you, mr. everett. >> i'm the type the progressive who grieves believes that we're only as wealthy as the least among us. so means that in san francisco we can only go as far as the african-american young men and women who have been economically disadvantaged for generations here in the city. we need to provide jobs. with when we talk about green jobs of future and sustainable produce, we need to talk about how to feed the single mothers in those communities. we need comprehensive reforms to bring those disadvantaged communitis with us. we cannot provide those folks with jobs unless we reform our drug policies in san francisco, which essentially disadvantage and persecute young men of color who on a day to day basis are being subjected to the criminal justice system in a way that is not done by other members of our society. >> you have
is schedule today return to court after the evaluation. the trial date is november 19th. >>> the san francisco crime lab is now in the hands of a federal jury. in 2010, mat di reportedly told police she had taken small amounts of drugs from this crime lab. she is charged by obtaining drugs, charges she denied. if convicted she could face up to four years in prison. >>> the coast guard is out again looking for two boaters who went missing. search and rescue team searched the waters. the two men vanished about 10:30 yesterday morning when their boat cap sides. two others on the boat made it to shore safely. . >>> get ready san francisco, the city is hosting more than half a dozen events from sweet week to america's baseball play off games so that means huge crowds coming to town. how officials plan to deal with the potential transit and traffic nightmares. shan na. >> that's right. just imagine the population of san francisco doubling. that's about how many people are expected here in the next ten days, and you can see the signs up already warning people they're going to take one of these traffi

francisco. like all small businesses, working for the city of san francisco is difficult. cash flow is a problem. invoices' get paid anywhere from 60 to 120 days. being cash for, i do not know how that would help me qualify for a loan, but it is a problem. so my question is, where do you go, if you do not have a lot of collateral, you do not have a lot of credit, have the you go about securing a line of credit? i have a lot of contracts for the next two years, but as my company grows, i cannot keep up with payroll. >> we have made loans in those situations. if you have contracts and can show us how they are going to be paid, if your credit is good, we would certainly like to take a look at that. we do not currently offer -- i should be careful. it is on and off whether we have a true line of credit. sometimes it can be structured in such a way to meet your cash flow needs, we can disperse it over time, allow you to pay it down. we have brochures back there. i encourage you to talk to us. >> let me add on that. over the last several years, a lot of small businesses have relied on the
in the trial of a former san francisco crime lab technician accused of steeling cocaine. she was charged with stealing cocaine. she has admitted to taking the drugs but denies the fraud charges. her case led to a audit that prompted the lab to be shut down and the district attorney oo dismiss -- to dismiss hundreds of drug cases. >>> two churches were hit by fire bombs last night. police say someone through a cocktail at a building around 10:00 p.m. a priest was able to put out the fire. another cocktail was thrown at another church. in a third case another building was targeted. they did minor damage. they are investigating. >> coming up, the investigation into an arson at an office belonging to the mayor heats up. >>> people are struggling to cope with the heat wave that pushed temperatures into the triple digits. ktvu's robert handa is live in morgan hill where the heat is uncomfortable and dangerous for some. >> reporter: very hot here in morgan hill. we are at a scrimmage. the teams are getting ready for the tournament during one of the hottest days of the year, which means for coac
you. >> that supposedly generates 2.5 million dollars but i believe san francisco is one of the number one tourist attractions in the united states. it generates $9 million tax revenue a year and the buddhists say in heaven and hell is on everyday. you come into the city, can you go church and come out and go to westportal and get a ticket. i think that is morally wrong and gouging and gouging and eventually it's just bad pr and for the generating 2.5 million dollars on this budget it's senseless and it's just more government putting the throats -- putting the boots on the throat of the average day citizen. >> all right. thank you sir. mr. yee. >> so let's face it. let's not make our parking meters the atm for the city. i mean we really need to support the notion that we don't want meters to operate on sunday, especially in our district, district seven. the business corridors need access to customers and when you charge on sundays and parking meters the same people shopping and at restaurants they're going to go somewhere else. they're going to go to stonestown and the malls an
in san francisco chinatown. we have 1300 households living in the development and they are mostly limited income, limited english speaking and seniors. for most of us it took us a long time to get in public housing. once we were there we put down roots. this became our home. not just a unit in the building. and the people around us become our family. to be displaced for a revitalization project means leaving our home and family. this is very frightening, especially when there is no ordinance to protect our right of return. >> can you take it outside, please? >>> once the development work is completed, to further protect us we should not have to go through additional screening in order to return. the housing authority has already checked and approved our eligibility. it is also not cost efficient to [speaker not understood], not to mention the extra burden it puts on us. that is why myself and i'm sure many others are in support of the right to return proposed ordinance. we need to know that after being displaced by public housing revitalization project, we have the right of return to enjo
on yet, we have back-up for cash paying folks carpool and fastrak no delays into the san francisco on the upper deck a few slow spots on the upper deck heading in beautiful shot, nice map to tell you about the events coming up america's cup started today fleet week happening oracle open world to get around all of this mass transit they are saying is the way to go. so far this morning that is on time no delays for bart, muni, caltrain at that hour 242 typical slow downs west on highway 4 from antioch towards pittsburg. carquinez bridge to the maze 24 to the caldecott tunnel eastbound caldecott right bore right lane blocked with accident. altamont commute just under 25 minutes. >>> still ahead, breaking news from the u.s./mexico border. shooting leaves a border patrol agent dead, we'll have details. >>> oprah's big the deal she just signed as she tries to improve ratings at her struggling cable network. >>> first a consumer reports' smell test can febreeze mask kitty litter and sardine odors? michael finney has the answer. >>> breaking news. a border patrol agent was killed in a shoo
